Georgian Bay and its topography was a favoured painting place amongst members of the Group of Seven, but it was most important to Arthur Lismer. It was here that he found himself as a painter. He was very sensitive to the beauty of Georgian Bay, and it was through his immense talent as a painter that he was able to capture its distinct sense of place in his oil sketches. This is nowhere more apparent than in his close-up views of the tangle of fallen logs, branches and foliage on the forest floor. Lismer heightened these forms with his technique of scratching lines with the end of his brush. He carved these lines in the thick, textured paint, lending a subtle three-dimensional quality to the surface, and also producing the effect of a dynamic energy. These lush works have a lasting resonance, and transport the viewer to their own childhood memories of cottages, camping and the fresh scent of pine needles.
